Our focus is on defining the key cellular components that impact the replication of viruses such as HIV-1, herpes simplex virus (HSV) one and two, influenza, and hepatitis B/C. We use a variety of genetic and proteonomic techniques to identify host factors that impact viral replication, some of which may constitute novel targets for pharmacotherapy.
